With the 60th annual Grammy Awards only a few weeks away, the Recording Academy is peeling back the curtain on which artists are scheduled to perform.
Stern Show regular Lady Gaga will take the Grammy stage on Jan. 28 along with pop star Pink, recording artist Childish Gambino (a.k.a. actor Donald Glover), and country band Little Big Town. Other performers include Broadway stars Patti LuPone, reprising her 1981 Grammy performance of “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” and Ben Platt, paying tribute to Andrew Lloyd Webber and Leonard Bernstein by performing a classic from “West Side Story.”
Gaga, who also performed at the 2017 Grammys alongside another Stern Show favorite in Metallica, is currently nominated for two awards: Best Pop Solo Performance (“Million Reasons”) and Best Pop Vocal Album (“Joanne”). She discussed "Joanne" at length during her most recent Stern Show appearance, revealing the album was named after her late Aunt Joanne who died from lupus long before Gaga was born but whose spirit has always been with her. "She's like this goddess who we worshiped in our family," Gaga told Howard.
She also delivered a show-stopping, in-studio rendition of "Million Reasons." Take a listen (below).
Pink and Little Big Town are also up for Grammys, but Childish Gambino leads all scheduled performers with five nominations, including for Album (“Awaken, My Love!”) and Record of the Year (“Redbone”).
